Senator Theodore Bilbo
Great work here. Bilbo, a Democrat, governor of Mississippi, later a U.S. Senator, made his name a synonym for white supremacy. Proud of being a racist, defended segregation, and was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

A Chilling Snapshot of the fight for American Equality
This groundbreaking series starred Jack Webb. Devised as a radio docudrama, it selected actual news articles and quotations to argue the progressive agenda of racial equality. Listen to the Feb 6, 1946 show unmasking the now-forgotten Sen. Theodore Bilbo of Mississippi—one of America’s most despicable racists-to get just a hint of what civil rights workers were up against. This is actual American history, not the fantasies of Glenn Beck or other Fox Television pundits. Powerful stuff.
